Lime brings together a leadership team from the insurance, financial services and consultancy sectors. The ambition; to marry experience with fresh eyes and fresh thinking.
Shaun Williams, CEO and Founder
Shaun has lived and breathed the life insurance business for more than 30 years.
With a particular interest in ‘needs analysis’ – speaking to people about their needs and marrying them up with the right insurance products, Shaun saw the importance of addressing the fact that well over 50% per cent of people aren't either insured or properly insured.
Shaun put together a group of like-minded leaders from across various sectors, and together with a blank sheet of paper on what was right and wrong with the current Life insurance business, Lime was born - a completely different model for Life and Health insurance.
Westpac, AMP, Colonial Mutual, and Aviva/Navigator as General Manager Distribution for Aviva responsible for Life Insurance, Corporate Superannuation, Navigator Platform and Fund Management.
Charlie Carrick, Head of Global Markets
Charlie has been involved in employee benefits technology since its inception. Following the successful launch of the first benefits platform in the UK, he moved to a global consultancy to do it all again.
With that technology now rolling out across the world, he started working directly with consultancies, clients and providers on their propositions for the ever-changing pensions and benefits landscape. Then Charlie met Shaun and realised that the future of protection products was about to change, and he had another chance to be at the forefront of a revolution.
Having worked across providers including NPI and Britannia and consultancies including Swire, Orbit and JLT, Charlie understands the issues and complexities of change.
